I am halfway through "The Ark" right now and will post the remainder of my review tomorrow. But I have to say that the story of how this book came to be published really caught my attention and I had to see what the fuss was about (rejected by 25 publishers Boyd self published as an ebook on Kindle and sold 7500 copies in 3 months - he was then approached by Touchstone books who bought all 3 of his unpublished books and a sequel to "The Ark" - talk about creative!). So far I have not been disappointed - this book is a suspense thriller to the max with bio-weapons, the end of the world, bad guys, good guys and Noah's Ark... come on, does it get any better? The only question I have is... is this a Christian book? There is nothing overtly wrong with it, but nothing overtly Christian either so far... just a question.
